To give something power

"From antiquity, people have recognized the connection between naming and power." -Casey Miller and Kate Swift

The name of my blog comes from the pixelated robot romance webcomic Diesel Sweeties. In comic #1469 the character "Uncle Grandpa" dismisses all modern web culture as "..Farkspaces, slashboings, Drudgefilters & diggw00ts." Did I mention "Uncle Grandpa" is an Apple Macintosh circa 1984?

Diesel Sweeties has a great assortment of t-shirts based on the characters, sayings and icons from the strip. I have a "Power Droid Has A Posse" shirt on order. Diggw00t indeed!

"Geeky, yes but I like it too."
